And with the blink of an eye, summer is once again upon us!
To celebrate, I threw a pool party and BBQ for 80 of my closest friends. You know, just the inner circle! ;)
I served Svedka Vodka cocktails using their new Grapefruit Jalapeno flavored vodka. Mixed with white cranberry juice and fresh lime juice, and garnished with fresh basil picked from my garden, it was refreshing and tasty. Sort of that thing where... you can't have just one!
Some party highlights:
Breaking in my new Safavieh outdoor furniture (to rave reviews)!
VIP guest Jeff Ross from Comedy Central kicking back all day long (all of the boys at the party were "freaking out" as we ladies would appropriately describe).
Successfully finishing the keg (always a proud moment, don't you agree?)
The Andy Cohen-themed 12-person Shotski making its rotation around the party all day long.
I got invited to a destination wedding this weekend from a couple 5-days away from getting married...A couple I had never met before. And I considered it...
The 8 dogs who showed up to boogie down with Hollywood Homer.
The ribs, steak, chicken, turkey burgers, and sausages. And all of the men who manned the grill with courage and conviction.
Oh, and of course night swimming with the last 12 remaining guests in the 85 degree heated pool!
